Pats, Lloyd could restructure deal-- Fri Mar 15 3:20 pm --
WR may not be going anywhere after all
When news broke of the New England Patriots hosting wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on rare restricted free-agent visit, the natural reaction was that Brandon Lloyd's roster spot is in jeopardy. It turns out Lloyd might have found a way to salvage another year with the Patriots. With a $3 million roster bonus due this weekend, Lloyd appears to be willing to return at a reduced salary. The sides have entered into talks to restructure Lloyd's salary, sources tell ESPN. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:Perhaps the Patriots aren't prepared to decimate their receiving corps. Lloyd fills the role of a rangy outside threat, a vital change of pace for an offense that likes to throw the ball over the middle so frequently.
